Show Notes

Direct Impact Nation, join Andrea Epting as we explore this important theme. Feelings are not facts. Oftentimes, we place this heavy weight on a feeling and convince ourselves it is the truth. This irrational thought process leads to unwanted emotions and behaviors that can negatively impact ourselves and others. Listen, as Andrea distinguishes feelings from fact and addresses how to remedy mistaking one for the other.

Episode Outline: We discuss the distinction between feeling and fact, negative and irrational thought processes, and identifying the origin of our feelings.

I. Feelings aren't facts.

II. Attempt to remedy by questioning where these emotions come from?

III. What are our emotions trying to tell us?

IV. Claim your emotions as your own; Do not blame other people

V. Avoid "creating a story" to go with the emotions and instead sit with them
